The companion volume to Making Concrete Countertops with Buddy Rhodes, this book details the art and craft of creating vertical concrete applications as well as integral sink and drainboard elements and curved-edge counters, for advanced users of the medium. An invaluable manual for contractors, architects, and expert handypersons alike, the project photography within will guide you step-by-step in the creation of an outdoor kitchen project, from the careful process of measuring a template, to building a mold, to casting, curing, and installation. With more than 30 years of experience in concrete art and fabrication, artist Buddy Rhodes shares his skills and experience in this useful, practical book. Most importantly, he shares the process he pioneered for creating the natural, stone-like pressed surfaces that have become his hallmark. As the popularity of concrete in home decor soars, this book will be an indispensable guide for any craftsman who hopes to make his mark on this incredible, expanding market.

Originally a ceramicist with a craftsman's interest in architectural integrity, Buddy abandoned his clay and potter's wheel when he developed a way to meld the warmth and handmade quality of pottery with the strength, versatility, and architectural applicability of concrete. His extensive product development and practiced understanding of the material coincided with the growth of international interest in concrete as a widely available and sustainable material.
